Al-Jazeera aids the IDF

In the aftermath of the IDF operation on Wednesday, where an undercover force was trapped and had to be rescued by another force, the IDF used a very different source of intelligence in order to spot out the enemy - the Al-Jazeera TV network.

It turns out that the Al-Jazeera TV crew was on the scene, on the Palestinian side and was broadcasting a live feed of the events. The broadcast was used by the IDF in order to spot out the sources of fire and aided the rescue team in finding the best way to help their trapped friends.

needless to say that Al-Jazeera was less than pleased about this. The Head of the Al-Jazeera office in Israel said “our men were on the top of our office building and in most of the film you could see people throwing rocks at the Israeli jeeps. To claim that our broadcast assisted the IDF is borderline incitement.” (emphases added, translated from Hebrew, source: Nrg.co.il )

So let us get this strait, they are mad at the IDF for watching a broadcast that shows Palestinians shooting at Israeli soldiers. Or maybe they are angry that the IDF allows the press to come in a broadcast live feeds to the world.

They've helped us but we've helped them a lot more vis a vis the Hamas and other such brilliant ideas of the Mossad.

They seem a little scared of their comrades in arms.

they arent mad at the IDF, either for watching the broadcast, or for allowing them to film. they're mad at the arabs who are accusing them of helping the IDF, because, according to them, it obviously isn't true, and it's borderline incitement.

and when you say emphasis added, what are you reffering to? there's no emphasis anywhere

that's not how I understood it when I read it. Maybe that's the way it comes out from my translation.

As for the missing emphasis - it must have been removed in the editing - I meant to Bold the borderline encitement.

i dont really understand why the Jazeera is mad :S?

to tell you the truth I am not sure why either - the only thing I suspect is what Menachem might have been trying to say, that if it seems that Al-jazeera is Helping Israel - people will turn against them, so they have to show how much they are against... Something...

The Al Jazeera is mad because it is scared of PA and gangs in the territories.

Here is what could be happening to them:

The Americans bomb them for aiding Bin-laden and the Palestinian militants hate them for conniving with the IDF.

According to experts like Mohammed El-Nawawy, such a dynamic shows us that Al-Jazerra is doing a good job.
